Description A Master's degree in Political Science is designed for students who normally would have the equivalent of an undergraduate major in Political Science and want to undertake advanced training in scholarly research. The focus of the graduate program in Political Science is on comparative politics related to small towns and rural areas. The politics of northern communities, resource development, and aboriginal self-government are areas of concentration. This focus also extends beyond Canada: faculty expertise on Russian local government, and aboriginal politics in Siberia and the Russian North offers students the best opportunity in western Canada to pursue graduate research connected to Russian politics.
